I’m a bit excited. Wanna know why? Because I’m about to embark on a three-edition, 12 month advertising campaign for my beautiful, lovely, very special product called Your Family Story. In which magazine you ask? The gorgeous, luscious, heartfelt Little ONE Baby. I met the associate editor Amy in Bendigo a couple of months ago […]

2011 is drawing to a close and it’s time to look back on the year that was. I’ve had some outstanding highlights this year: the business was based in Canberra, Sydney and Berlin. The camera workshops went really well, I helped some businesses get further along in their marketing and I captured some amazing and […]

Beth, these photos are just beautiful. You are quite amazing. Lauren and Angus will treasure these so much when they’re older. Your family must be very proud of you too!

Beth Jennings - January 19, 2012 - 6:54 pm

oh thanks so much Jules! It’s an ongoing addiction – photographing these people!

Fiona - May 27, 2012 - 3:16 pm

Happy Tears, Inspirational and I’m jealous of your talent. That’s all I’ve got to say : )

Beth Jennings - May 29, 2012 - 11:57 am

Thank you SO much Fiona, that is such a lovely thing to say. Happy tears!? Wow, that’s really cool, thank you for making my day with such a lovely comment!

As a family, David and Alissa always want family photos.  The trick for them is finding someone with a trained eye, that can see everyone there.  They have two lovely boys, Harry (Henry, actually, but known as Harry) and Archer, otherwise known as Arch or Archie.  Archie is just one month old.  This is a […]

Dear Beth

You have helped us to capture a series of memories for our family that are at once beautiful, fragile and unique. The glorious collection of our family, our Slice of Heaven, are a constant reminder of how lucky we are and the joy of living and love that binds us.

Thank you so very very much

Alissa, David, Harry and Archer

Beth Jennings - December 2, 2011 - 2:18 pm

Wow David what an amazing comment, thank you so so much. I loved creating this beautiful collection for you, and I love that you love it all so much!
You are so very very welcome.

When I met with Terry and Mia, and heard about their unique family, I thought, you bet, let’s go! They own Foxy’s Landscapes, and have been contributing their amazing design and landscaping skills to the Canberra region for years.  They’ve been so busy meeting other people’s needs that they were forgetting their own. They knew […]

Margaret is one pretty amazing woman.  She’s a single mum raising two boys.  She has the added challenge that they both have Autism. Margaret was publicly awarded last year for her achievements as a mum managing her two boys Sam and Jack.  Part of the celebration was to have her 2011 family story captured with […]

This week I was awarded the 2011 ACT AIPP Epson Professional Photography Awards runner up Family Photographer of the Year. I’m absolutely wrapped.  It’s a tough gig, to have my work assessed against incredible competition.  In celebrating this fantastic announcement, it is appropriate to showcase the latest family I have been working with. Kate rang […]

Mark and Lynelle had always wanted to have some photography of their family.  Problem was, they looked but couldn’t see what they liked in terms of style and execution.  For years, they said, this had gone on…until we crossed paths! Lynelle in particular was so excited about having real photography done of her growing family.  Their […]

Beautiful photos, even though we are biased, we are very proud of them all especially the different ways they have all been there for Lynelle when she has needed them. Love to you all.

Kathy Ireland - March 2, 2011 - 5:28 am

Love these. I am especially enamoured with the one of Lauren’s “burst of joy”. Gorgeous!

Beth Jennings - March 2, 2011 - 8:38 am

Thanks so much Kathy!!!! It was a really lovely session, very rewarding. And your comment comes all the way from Toronto!!! How’s Jess going? I bet she and Lauren would get along like a house on fire :) send my best wishes to your gang xx

Beth Jennings - March 2, 2011 - 8:50 am

They really are a lovely family aren’t they? And courageous to put themselves in front of the camera. They were very natural in the wall style, so the pictures are very real. The result really shows how close they are to one another. Thanks for your thoughts Janet and John!

Lynelle - March 2, 2011 - 2:09 pm

Beth, you have captured the simplicity and atmosphere of our Friday Night Picnics so well. We enjoyed sharing our formula of family + food + fun, and appreciated how you were both there and not there, taking photos while appearing to just hang out with us for a while. We love the result, thank you.

Beth Jennings - March 2, 2011 - 3:17 pm

Wow thanks Lynelle! All credit to you, you all took my direction so well at the start, and behaved normally with the usual degree of spontenaity as well. I’m glad you say I was there without being there…I wish I was invisible really, so that’s the best feedback, thank you again Lynelle! All the best… x

Amy Gibson - March 9, 2011 - 3:18 pm

These photos are great- I was going to try and name a favourite one, but can’t :)

Actually maybe I can, the photo of Lauren picking flowers with the clouds approaching from the left. That one took my breath away.

Beth Jennings - March 9, 2011 - 5:02 pm

Awww thanks Amy!!! That late afternoon light was so great, very inspiring!! Thanks so much for stopping in to take a look…it is fascinating isn’t it, what we end up with?

Sami - March 22, 2011 - 1:44 pm

Just divine!

Beth Jennings - March 22, 2011 - 9:50 pm

You are SO right Sami, they are divine!!! What a treasure trove they have!

Your little girl has been at home with you since the beginning… Now she’s growing up and it’s time to start school… It’s exciting, it’s scary, it’s a little bit sad… It’s a time for learning, discovery and growth… I have ONE spot open to capture the excitment, trepidation and anticipation of all the elements of your […]

This is a phenomenal opportunity!! If I lived in Canberra (and had a child starting school…) I’d definitely snap this offer up!!!

Beth Jennings - February 4, 2011 - 8:16 am

Yes Kathy I think you’re right!!! Thank you for dropping in to say hi! xx

Rebecca and Steve were a real joy to meet.  They have a very purposeful approach in how they are raising their children Freya and Hugh.  They’re sending Freya to Red Hill Primary, which is an International Baccalaureate world school, a non-profit educational foundation, motivated by its mission, focused on the student.  The three programmes for students aged 3 to 19 […]

Hi Beth, I’ve just read your post! Thanks for writing such nice things about our little family.

Now that the prints are finally up, we are constantly reminded of how lucky we are. Our guests also love looking through our coffee table book, its really lovely to share these special photos with others..

You are so wonderfully talented, keep doing what you are doing and don’t change a thing :)


Beth Jennings - January 26, 2011 - 11:43 am

Oh Rebecca thank you so much!! I really loved the process with you and your family, it was really a pleasure. I feel really lucky to be finding a way to do what I love and give something awesome to people like you at the same time. It’s a win win, yay, we love that!!
